Parents and pupils can rest assured that 2017 applications are still being captured at CPUT, despite recent protests and disruptions.
CPUT media liason Lauren Kansley says the application process has been affected by student unrest on campus, but officials are working off-site to get through application forms.

An “in progress” application means that the application is in hands of various faculties.
According to Kansley, different faculties also have different protocols and selection citeria before confirming placement for the coming academic year.
She says it is completely normal for some applications to be pending at this stage and advises that some pupils receive provisional acceptance as late as January.
There are at least 10 000 spots for first year students at CPUT, chosen from approximately 50 000 applications.
Concerned parties can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to get a status update on their application.
